I do a couple of things - when I find something that I feel is good info to share - I don't recreate the wheel - I share that information and make sure that people know where I got it from - this is good internet etiquette - However, there are other times that I blog strictly from my heart - giving you my opinion and why I feel a certain way. This works too - but I also know that graphics and video's should be included in the blog post.
Blogs are quickly becoming a great way to draw attention to your business or product. With WordPress, you can set your blog posts up to be shared on the social networks of your choosing. So, the share is automatic and saves you time! That is what I do!
Having a blog can boost the amount of traffic to your website and can give your online users the information that they crave most. Right now there are over 150,000,000 blogs online and a new blog is being posted somewhere in the world every half second?
This means that about 175,000 new blogs are posted online each and every day. With the sheer amount of blogs online you need to know how to make your blog stand out and command attention. Look at the following to see how your blog can stand out:
- Photos and Graphics Can Enhance Your Blog - You might think that blogs are all about text, but you are making a big mistake if you fail to add photos and graphics to your blog. Did you know that articles online with at least one image generate about 94% more views than those that have no images. Online users are simply more likely to contact your business or actually read your blog if some sort of image is posted to give you more validation. Images make an impact and you must add them to your blog. Photos can be a great way to separate text and give readers a chance to break up the information that you are feeding them.
- Clean Design - The overall design of your blog and the quality of your posts is what really matters most. You need to have a clean design and layout that adds credibility and enables your blog to be optimized for all mobile devices. If the design of your blog is clean and organized, you will immediately be seen as a credible source by online users.
- Unique Voice - The design of your blog might grab online user’s attention at first, but it is your unique voice and writing style that will have them coming back for more. It is a great idea to try and create your blog using a writing style that is conversational, but also sticking to being concise. You want to use short words and stay away from creating fluff blogs that aren’t filled with any useful or meaningful information.
